From a family estate established since 1743, altogether 30 ha of vineyards, 12 ha devoted to the Picpoul. 100% Picpoul grape grows on soils containing a max of 54% pure limestone, the rest being calcareous clay. The vines are on average 45 years old, cared for the traditional way.
This beautiful, lean fresh wine exhibits white flowers aromas, pear flavours and citrus zest, medium bodied and elegant in the mouth with a lingering fresh finish. Finesse and smoothness are key features of Cuvée Ludovic Gaujal.
Serve chilled. A wine that will suit perfectly the seafood and oysters produced so close to its territory, in the Mediterranean. Try it also with asparagus or delicate white meat like lamb. It will also match dry goat cheese, or can be enjoyed on its own.
Did you know? The name Picpoul derives from the French “Picque”, meaning sharp, and poul, meaning lips, translating as “lip stinger”.
Jeb Dunnuck of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate described this wine as "a steal" and awarded it a very respectable score of 89 points.
